spending. we promise. we will do it. and they both agreed to do this. now it was a -- obama is not asking to do targeted spending cuts. he's asking to do a deficit reduction package. >> it has moved. >> it has moved. and the u.s. -- >> we talked clearly about it and -- >> and you ask the people in the u.s., what about sequester? i just want to see that we can cut spending. the reason we -- >> it's symbolic at this point. >> it is. it's only 44 billion by tend of the year. >> i would agree. i would think that if you hadn't looked at what you had done over the last couple of months where it had been partisan politics and where republicans feel like they got the short end of the stick, you might be able to do a better deal right now. but every time one side feels like it's lost, it has to come back and make up ground. >> government has grown 20% over the last four years. we're trying to cut it marginally. >> but you know as well as i do, it's discretionary spending that's the big problem. >> but there's still hundreds of billions of dollars in discretionary spending. but there's 200 billion
